Beginning my advanced education at community college was always the plan. My Mom earned her Registered Nursing degree at Rappahannock Community College when I was younger, a degree that made a big difference in the quality of my family’s life. Growing up, Rappahannock Community College was a part of my life. Community college is a great place to lay a foundation for the knowledge that will carry me through my life. It is a place to build from the beginning, to really work with my hands and lay bricks at the ground floor. Now, having earned an Associates degree, I have a solid platform for the rest of my life, one I built a day at a time and paid for myself working numerous jobs.
Time waits for no man or woman, however, so I have to keep moving on. But I can bring with me everything I have learned wherever I go next. The work that I have done, in the classroom and in the real world, has given so much to me. I have a lot to offer wherever I go from here.
I want to be useful. I want to take all I can from the world and give back as much as I am capable. I want to develop as a scholar, as a citizen, as a member of the collective conscience, and as an individual. There is still so much more work to be done. The architecture of my life is incomplete. There are a lot of things that I want. If I try sometimes, I get what I need.
When the rain starts to fall, this colorful drain and gutter system attached to the outside of a building in the Neustadt Kunsthofpassage turn into charming musical instruments. The Funnel Wall is one of the strangest and most enjoyable attractions in Dresden’s student district in the new town.

I have not felt like writing lately. I have felt outside of my skin. Sorry, sweet tumblr, and whatever scant ears are around.
There are of course things to write about. Hawt teachers, vindictive teachers; thankfully, they are not all one and the same. There are letters and lost and found acquaintances.
But I have not felt like writing lately. Nope.
